    I read about this issue a few days ago and now there's a big article about it -

    HTC One X issue breaks Android multi-tasking

    If this is true HTC needs to fix it asap.

    You would have to ask Phil -- he is the only one around these parts who has the phone to see...

    Yeah, I read about this on xda the other day. What got me excited about the OneX and EVOLTE was how HTC implemented the Recent Apps feature. It's like the webOS's card UI, which I liked and missed a lot, because it made multi-tasking so much easier.

    If the problem exists in the EVOLTE, I hope HTC addresses it soon.

    Now, this would be a deal-breaker for me. Too bad.

    Thanks, Phil! I plan on rooting soon after I get one. It's comforting to see it seems to be a Sense issue, so I know I'll be ditching that as soon as an alternative is available. That's my biggest beef with manufacturer-customized Android: the manufacturer will inevitably find a way to cripple an otherwise excellent device.

    I would say this is what is called 'Broken by Design'. Which is a lot worse than something that's broken and can be fixed. It is a deal breaker.

    And in light of the Customs fiasco that's just been announced... I rest my case about manufacturer modifications.

    Funny how people were installing task killers cause they couldn't stand how Android kept things running in the background and now it does it on its own and it's wrong too. Maybe Apple will sue them for copying their sucky multi-tasking and they'll have to fix it.

    I can't wait to see an HTC promo rep in my nyc store and show them the issue as I buy my nexus. This issue could end HTC.

    customized? what the hell are you talking about? the phone cannot multitask anything. Reviewers missed a basic android functionality. I bought the phone based on the reviews I read at android central and I regret it. About to return the phone is HTC cannot come clean on this issue.

    What HTC has done with multitasking on this phone is disgusting. They completely effed this phone up just to make room for their crap skin. If I'm watching a YouTube video, stop to open another app and then go back to YouTube, the phone tries to reopen YouTube and can't even do that. Nice going HTC. You took a guy who swore he was only going to buy HTC phones from now on and who convinced two friends to by the One X and turned him into someone who will be buying the GSIII in around a month and won't buy another phone from HTC until they stop with this stupidity.

    Completely agree. How did EVERY review site miss this?
    everybody check this, reboot your one X. With no tasks running go to task manager. Look at free RAM I have 228 MB Free. The One GB reported by about/hardware seems to be a crock as well. Add the available to the total in task manager and you get ~670 MB. Where's the additional 330?
    The Kernel alone is taking up 160 MB.
    I'm taking mine back for a refund and grabbing a GSM GNex. As much as I hate Sammy I want a 720p phone. Buying anything else in AT&T's stable is a step backward.

    This is crappy, I work in a building with pretty low coverage (just like almost everyone with Sprint). So i will load a web site and shoot over to Twitter or Facebook while it loads. The fact that sense may force Chrome to close when I go to Twitter, then have to reload the web page when I come back defeats the purpose.

    It sounds like how the iPhone handles multitasking. If I wanted something to run like the iPhone I would just buy the iPhone.

    I really think Phil NEEDS to put a video of this issue happening/not happening on his evo..

    Gonna be done with the evo and this site. Galaxy nexus FTW.

    I know, right? I mean, how dare we explain what's going on without setting our hair on fire. The horror of being rational.

    And as Jerry explained, kernel tweaks can change this.

    All i am saying is if this happened on your first view of the SG3, the site would of spun that article differently.

    No one, not even an android user, should have to tweak anything in order to get a phone to multitask correctly. that should work out of the box.

    Multitask correctly? Subjective. You mean, "multitask the way I want it to."

    Actually that sounds cute, but NO. If something is closing the second you switch apps its not even multitasking at all. Its running the app in the foreground and that is it.
